Trainee Air Traffic Controllers
Salary: £17,000 per year plus benefits during training, rising to upwards of £50,000 per year + allowances after you have successfully validated as an Air Traffic Controller
Location: Initial training will be undertaken either in Hampshire and Gloucester, UK or Jerez, Spain
You might be surprised at where our Air Traffic Controllers have come from – they have a myriad of interesting jobs, hobbies and experience. Becoming a successful Air Traffic Controller is about your skills and how you apply them. Your mindset. The way you handle new challenges. Put simply, if you have the right mix of qualities, this is an opportunity to transform your current career into something more. As a Trainee Air Traffic Controller, you’ll help to keep the skies over the UK safe. You’ll receive all the training you need to be at your best in a uniquely challenging and rewarding role.
What will I do?
Your first few months as a Trainee Air Traffic Controller will see you learning on simulators and studying everything from meteorology to aviation law. You'll then move to an airport control tower or one of our radar control centres to continue your training. Once you’re trained, you’ll coordinate up to 25 aircraft – not only as they take off and land, but throughout their journey across our airspace. Communicating constantly with pilots, you’ll keep each plane a safe distance apart and react swiftly to changing events. Training takes around three years.
What will I need?
Your specific background isn’t important – you might be a recent graduate; you might have built a career in a completely different industry. What matters is your resilience, your self-discipline, and your proactive, forward-thinking approach. Reliable and vigilant, you can adapt to changing situations and communicate effortlessly as part of a team. As well as those qualities, we’ll want to see:
- A real passion for becoming a Trainee Air Traffic Controller
- A calm nature and good powers of concentration
- Strong spatial awareness and excellent problem-solving skills
- Good general health – you’ll need to pass a medical
- As a minimum you will have five GCSEs or equivalent at grade A*-C/9-4, including English and Maths
